You know the two are equivalent if you turn the mixed number(the number with the whole number) into an improper fraction and see if it matches. You do this by taking the denominator and multiplying it by the whole number and add the numerator to it. The denominator remains the same. Ex. 9/1/2 would be 19/2 when it has been converted.

No.A number a is divisible by another number b, if and only if the fraction a/b is equivalent to a whole number. And as you know, 1/2 = 0.5, which is not a whole number, hence is 1 not divisible by 2.The only number 1 is divisible by, is 1 itself. All numbers are divisible by 1.

You convert 10.6 into a fraction by taking the number on the left of the decimal and write it as a whole number. Then if you know the place values after the decimal point, you would know that 6 is in the tenths place. So the answer is 10 6/10 .

Thats what I'm here to know. Ugh. ^^ _

Divide both sides by 27 - so you need to know what fraction of 10 is 3. Divide the second number by the first and you get 3/10.

its on the left side of the period.

Only if it happens to BE a whole number. As you probably know, you can't "convert" a fraction to a whole number, without losing precision. But the slope may well happen to be a whole number, such as 1, 2, 3, -1, etc. (or close enough to a whole number).

That the numerator and the denominator have the same value.

The question is ambiguous. Do you want to know how to multiply a fraction by a whole number, as well as by a mixed number? Or are you asking how to multiply a whole number by a mixed number and express the product as a fraction? Or what?

fraction, a whole number, and something else that i don't know.

The numerator is more than the denominator

There is no whole number immediately in front of the fraction. And, for the fractional part, the numerator (the top number) is smaller than the denominator (the bottom number).

No.A number a is divisible by another number b, if and only if the fraction a/b is equivalent to a whole number. And as you know, 1/2 = 0.5, which is not a whole number, hence is 1 not divisible by 2.The only number 1 is divisible by, is 1 itself. All numbers are divisible by 1.

We all know that 1 is whole number, so when you subtract 1 from 1 the result is 0. Subtraction of 2 whole numbers results also in whole number which in our case is 0. (example: 12-2=10). any number that is a decimal or a fraction is NOT a whole number, so because 0 isn't a fraction or have a decimal point with a number after it, it is therefore a whole number

cast back to maths and you know that 0.5 is a half, 0.25 is a quarter, you only need to remember converting a decimal to a fraction and you know what to do.

A whole number is a fraction that is equal to like 4/4 and because they have a numerator and denominator that are both the same numbers and because of that you have to sometimes change it into a whole number and a whole number is basically just like a regular number like 4 or something but its actually different because it means that a whole number is actually just a fraction number and not a normal number that you already know .
